This mod is about trying to save engine heat.
Keeping heat in your engine longer so it takes less time to warm after the vehicle sits for a few hours or less.
Instructions for mod
The first part of this mod is easy. Beg, barrow or steal a thermal imager and take pictures of your vehicle with a hot engine after sitting for an hour or two.
Use the images to figure out where heat is escaping from the engine bay and try to slow down that heat transfer with added insulation, weather stripping, blankets, grill blocks or anything you can find laying around. (not as easy as snapping a few pictures)
This is especially helpful during the cooler months.
